Women Talking



Faced with violent abuse, the women in a Mennonite community meet to agree on one of three choices: stay and do nothing, stay and fight, or leave.

The movie's title describes the plot but what can't be overstated is the far-reaching relevance of what the women are talking about. Their discussion is meaningful beyond the barn they meet in, and many perspectives are represented while trying to hear all points of view. Different positions will resonate with different audience members; this is a classically Socratic conversation, delivered by a stellar cast, where the political debate is passionate and relevant beyond its setting. She said and she said.
